EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says defensive end Brian Robison is questionable for Sunday's game against Houston.
Robison suffered a shoulder sprain in yesterday's 36-22 win over the St. Louis Rams. Frazier told reporters today that he'll know more later in the week if Robison will be able to play or not. Frazier also said cornerback Chris Cook will practice this week as if he will play Sunday. Like Robison, a final decision on Cook won't come until later in the week.

Frazier on other topics:
On Christian Ponder’s play: “He did a good job yesterday. When we scored on his scramble (on the opening drive) … that really set a tone for the rest of the day.”
On Adrian Peterson’s quest to break the NFL rushing record: “The record would be great, but the most important thing would be a win in Houston. Our players are enthused by what he’s doing … but every one of guys want to win.”
On figuring out various NFC playoff scenarios: “I won’t even try. I will be focusing on how to beat a really good football team, the Houston Texans.”
On kicker Blair Walsh: “His approach, mentally, has been terrific. He has ice-water in his veins. All those kicks yesterday were big kicks … with distance. He has lived up to all expectations.”
On this year (8-6 so far) compared to last year (3-13): “It’s a good difference. We do have a lot of guys with a lot of pride, who want to play well.”
Frazier also said the Vikings will turn up the heat at their practice facility this week to try to mirror the weather conditions in Houston. He said that means it'll be at least 72 degrees inside when the players come back to work Wednesday.
